    Comcast is launching a $20 live TV streaming service with 60 channels

    Comcast is launching a live TV streaming service to rival Sling, FuboTV, YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV and the rest. It’s called Now TV and it has something competitors don’t, which is an extremely attractive price tag. Now TV includes 60 live channels and a Peacock subscription, all for $20 a month.

    There is a small catch. TV is now only available to Comcast Xfinity Internet customers and will work as an add-on to any existing service plan. A bare-bones Comcast cable plan costs $50 to $60 a month and doesn’t include internet, so this is still quite a bargain.

    The platform gives access to 40 premium cable channels, including highlights such as AMC, Discovery, A&E, IFC, The History Channel, TLC, Lifetime and many more. It also comes with 20 hours of DVR storage and allows for three simultaneous streams. You also get 20 free ad-supported television channels (FAST), such as NBC News NOW, Sky News, and a slew of genre-based channels. However, the service has some glaring omissions, as there are no local TV broadcasts or sports channels.

    Of course, Now TV also includes a premium, albeit ad-supported, subscription to Peacock, so you can watch the crazy insane Mrs Davis, the meeting comedy Big crew and nearly 1,000 SNL episodes.

    When the service launches in a few weeks, it will be accessible through the Xfinity Stream app and supported gadgets such as Xfinity flex, Amazon Fire TV, iOS devices and Android devices. As for why Comcast would undercut competitors on price here, the company’s cable arm has been hit particularly hard by cord cutters, loss of over 600,000 subscribers in the first quarter of 2023.
